Activated Patches is an ongoing series of free cross stitch patterns designed for use as clothing/apparel patches to show your stance on world events and social issues. Each topic featured on activated patches is an issue that I believe in, and hope to call attention to. To download the PDF of any patch, pull up it's photo in the slideshow and click directly on it. In lieu of purchasing a pattern, please consider donating directly to either the recommended organizations found in the photo description, or a similar organization. Stay safe, stay activated.
